Preview: Where The Wild Things Are

Maurice Sendak’s childhood masterpiece is coming to the big screen via Spike Jonze. It’s going to be an interesting take on that book that we all read (or had read to us) as children. (And if you didn’t read this when you were a wee-one, well, it’s never to late to enjoy a great story… It’s short if you’re not a reader… like 20 pages short.) Anyway, here’s a quick look at what Jonze is doing with the classic tale. And that song, yeah, that’s Canada’s-own Arcade Fire with “Wake Up” — and it strangely works well here. And we noticed that the credits list Tom Hanks as a producer (obviously) but that Karen O (the front woman to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is doing the music. Cool. And also that Dave Eggers (the wicked mind behind A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius) had his hand in the screenwriting. That alchemy spells awesome. But we’ll just have to wait and see.
